Brian O'Driscoll Has A Pop At 'The Lunsters'

Brian O'Driscoll Has A Pop At 'The Lunsters'
By Conor Neville Updated

Brian O'Driscoll was on Sean Rourke's show on RTE 1 this morning ahead of the release of his autobiography this Thursday.

In the course of the interview he spoke of his irritation with the 'Lunsters', those Leinster born folk who hopped aboard the Munster bandwagon in the mid 2000s - and then switched back when Leinster started dominating in the Joe Schmidt era.

That was a huge frustration. You're born where you're born... I couldn't imagine over the course of the last five years when Leinster have had some success, anyone down in Munster saying 'Emmm, you know, we're not going so well, maybe I'll go up and support them', that's not the way it should be... For me it was a lack of loyalty.

Sean O'Rourke asked whether any of those people who had hopped back aboard the Leinster train once Heineken Cup set up camp in Donnybrook had apologised for their treachery.

No one apologises, people just pretend that the past never happened.
